I'm sure there's a limit out there somewhere and it's very likely to be
way beyond what is practical.   On most of my systems I also add /opt to
the inherited-pkg-dir list.   On laptop configurations where space is at
a premium this can turn into a dozen or so mounts (compilers, blastwave,
companion, local docs, etc). 

inherit-pkg-dir is a special case of a read-only loopback mount that is
very important during the installation of a zone (ie, the initial 
lu copy list is significantly smaller and it's OK to fail file creates
in the subsequent pkgadds).

So this all works as advertised.  If you are having problems then post
your zone XML file or the output from a zonecfg -z <zonename> info and
we'll see if we can spot where things are going wrong.
